10-year-old boy fatally shot after finding gun in mom's car

A 10-year-old Houston boy was fatally shot when a gun he found in his mom’s car went off unintentionally, police said.

The boy and his 11-year-old cousin spotted the firearm and began playing with it after the victim’s mother told them to fetch something from the vehicle, according to Lt. Larry Crowson of the Houston Police Department.

At some point, the gun was accidentally discharged. It wasn’t immediately clear who fired the deadly shot, Crowson said.
